WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Told in a series of fast-paced, sharply etched scenes, Boys' Life traces the misadventures of three former college buddies now seeking to make their way in the big city -- and with various women of their acquaintance. There is the cynical Jack, who is already married and a father, but is not above pursuing daytime adulteries while baby-sitting in the park; the innocent, vulnerable Phil, who grows weary of not being taken seriously and concludes that being unhappy is the way things are supposed to be; and the handsome, amoral Don, who risks a solid relationship with his girlfriend by sleeping with another, simply to see if he "could get away with it." Moving along briskly, with its mood of satirical humor brilliantly sustained, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism--and protracted adolescence--which characterizes its protagonists and, in the end, makes it hilariously clear that it is actually the women who possess the qualities of "manhood" and maturity which their deluded lovers so desperately lay claim to. The show is being presented on the 6th Floor. Appropriate For Ages: 15 and up
